UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching 2002-2006 Award Recipients
Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
School of Architecture
Kazi Ashraf is an assistant professor in the School of Architecture. He strongly believes that architecture matters, and that design is an act of inherent optimism. His goal in architecture is "integrative thinking," where history, theory and practice are brought together.
Ashraf believes that teaching architecture in the design studio environment is unique. He challenges students to discover their own potential, passion and determination. In his research orientation, Ashraf subscribes to the idea that architecture is more than a discipline or a profession; architecture and existence are unavoidably intertwined.
A doctoral student wrote, "Ashraf presents the student with the idea that everything is architecture, and architecture is everything. His studio teaching is like a collage of inspiring words and images propelling you to do fantastic, out of the ordinary things."
